Supreme Court

Slate's Dahlia Lithwick famously claimed in 2009 that the Supreme Court was unequivocally "pro-business."

Senior Counsel Hans Bader explains that the Court's recent decision in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting is yet more evidence that Lithwick was wrong.

"The Supreme Court has ruled against the Chamber of Commerce’s challenge to an Arizona law punishing businesses that hire illegal aliens by taking away their business licenses, and requiring use of E-Verify. The vote in Chamber of Commerce v. Whiting was 5-to-3, with the five “conservative” justices voting against the Chamber of Commerce. So much for the erroneous claim that the Supreme Court is dominated by pro-business conservatives."
